Buyback of Land

If the government was serious about "saving the Daintree" and genuinely green then they could commit to buying back all land in the Daintree and pay residents realistic money to relocate to a similar property elsewhere in Australia.
Years ago they bought back vacant land reaching about one third of properties but now they leave it to private organisations to beg and con the public in to giving tax deductable donations.

While the basic idea of buyback to save the rain forest sounds romantic and noble, for the Daintree community it means that with every block that is bought back there is one household less for the community to share costs or eligibility for infrastructure and services..
Every community needs basic services and facilities such as school, clinic, electricity, telecommunications and garbage collecction and then the government looks at how many properties can share the costs for this, and with less occupied properties a lot of things become financially unviable.

There are individuals and organisations out there that will not be happy until they have bought up the entire Daintree and closed all roads, from time to time they celebrate the closure of roads and state they are looking forward to closing more.

A few years ago when progress was made towards a power solution for the Daintree you would think that the greens would be happy to hear that the pollution from the diesel generators might be a thing of the past but no, they were not happy at all, they were worried land prices might go back to realistic level which would be inconvenient for their buyback plans.

cafnec concern over land prices

They run Facebook pages where they repeatedly make false claims about development in the Daintree as below, spreading false rumours that there are plans to build power stations, bridges and roads, and ask people to sign petitions and send money.

 

1 May: Kelvin Davies publishes a rubbish article Sparks fly, which confirms the Conspiracy Theory that all the denial of basic services is about keeping land cheap for the never ending buyback.

And now in 2018 there is unprecedented commitment from federal government to make the Daintree a genuine eco-tourism destination and replace the hundreds of generators with a cleaner greener grid, but some of the local ultragreens are still against it, citing fears of overdevelopment (planning scheme and buyback have removed that threat already) so clearly their main concern is that it could be incovenient for the never ending buyback if land prices move from peanuts to realistic level.


Celebrating the closure of a road after another block was bought back.

It is no wonder that people in the Daintree feel like they are not wanted and there is a conspiracy to drive them out, when the people who obstruct their basic infrastructure are doing this for the purpose of being able to buy up land for peanuts and celebrating the achievement of closing roads....

The other side of the buyback story

Besides numerous pages spreading lies there is also a Facebook page that tells the other side of the story;
Rainforest Truths Australia. Here you can read about dodgy dealings, corruption and fraud in the buyback business.

So after this fraud was discovered they quickly changed the name ,read the above article here online.

And what to think about this testimony from an ex-Daintree resident;

We sold our property lot 186 Cedar rd, back to buy back, signed an environmental covenant to be saved. Then found out the property was sold on to a tissue company in America. The environmental covenants unless national park or wet tropics mean nothing. We had the an EPA solicitor defenders office supporting us. Got no where as the title was freehold. It is very a corrupt system. We had a house at lot 188 Blodwood rd.Cow Bay. Sold up and went back to the Atherton Tablelands Malanda. We were in Cow Bay nearly 20 yrs.
